Clem & Louisa's Cape Town Cottage

House Call

Name: Clem & Louisa Barnes
Location: City Bowl — Cape Town, South Africa

Our house is over 100 years old and is a typical Victorian semi-detached City Bowl cottage. Clem is an architect and two years ago we undertook a major renovation. Heritage concerns required that the old character was retained for the street aspect — however, the addition is contemporary, personalized and belies its external look. The renovations also optimized our fabulous view of Table Mountain and sought to use every inch of the property.Thanks Clem & Louisa!
